Talking Unbricking my P7

I bricked my P7 tonight with it appearing as a USB drive only. I tried to follow the MP4Nation guide (linked below) to try and unbrick it but this did not work.

However, I finally tried something different and now I've successfully fixed it using the following steps:

1. Follow the MP4Nation guide and rename the P7K.hex firmware file (from ) to P7K.rkw. Continue restoring until it fails. It will try to restart the player and ask you whether to wait for the player to start or not. Answer "no" to this (as it will never start and repair will fail)
2. If you go to My Computer, you will see 2 removable drives. Try to find which one is the smaller one (formatting both as FAT32 will give you hints). Then unzip the desired firmware update (I chose 1.37) into this smaller drive (it should have a number of directories inside).
3. Safely remove the P7 and restart
4. The P7 should boot normally now. Open up iriver plus 3 and do a reinitialization.
5. Enjoy your resurrected P7

The only things I've lost is the mp3, avi, and pictures that originally came with the P7 I wonder if I can grab them from somewhere
